Diggin' it in Maui

Part II of a series of photo stories on Maui

I decided to stay in Lahaina town itself, since it was pretty much Maui's town centre. I briefly flirted with staying at a beach resort, but after hearing from a friend that Lahaina was pretty, decided to spend my one night in Maui there. I found the Lahaina Inn online, while snatching little breaks in between work. I checked out user reviews at Trip Advisor and having found that most of the comments were really positive, made a reservation.

On arriving, I found a tiny little boutique hotel with a very cosy reception area, manned by one friendly receptionist, who turned out to be the porter, concierge and everything else you can think of as well. The entire hotel is charmingly decorated in a very old style; I loved the flower wallpaper, old sepia portraits of long-gone people, the homey feel of the common room where there was free coffee, tea and a tin of Japanese sweeties out for everyone to help themselves too. The room also housed the only television in the hotel, but when you're on a beautiful tropical island like Maui, you don't need a television.

My room was tiny, and there was barely enough room for me to drag my suitcase into the room to place on the luggage stand. But it was very comfortable, with an antique-style bed, homey patchwork quilt, numerous cushions and pillows, old cupboards and my very own balconey with rocking chairs (of which I hardly made any use of). I wish I could have stayed more nights there.
